cracked nipples during breastfeeding

What can cause cracked nipples during breast feeding?

Choose the incorrect answer.

  • The baby is not latching on properly
  • You need to reevaluate your sitting position when breast feeding 
  • You are using soap  to wash your breast and that can cause skin cracks in the nipple 
  • It is unknown why the nipples crack,  but it does occur.  This is normal and it is expected to happen.  There is no need to intervene. The nipple will heal!
